"usa today" is reporting the first family is going to be staying at the $7 million home of a top democratic donor and, of course, bill clinton also vacationed in martha's vineyard during his time in the white house but he famously and i know that gene will remember this and ed will remember this, he famously switched his vacation destination after dick morris took polls to see which vacation spots would be better and they found out that wyoming, surprisingly enough, is better than martha's vineyard. nantucket is better than martha's vineyard but i don't think you'll find that in the poll. "usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating his office and that criticism didn't help his bid for the second term. now, for republicans who are ready to poun

. it was interesting yesterday on martha's vineyard where the president is vacationing, the deputy secretary went farther than anyone had gone in saying that the events, the bloodshed which at that point was not even a guide, did call into question the interim government's intention to fulfill those promises. >> all right. we will continue, of course, and keep an eye on this developing story. p.j. crowelly, michael crowley and ann, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >>> now to breaking news out of beirut where some dramatic video is coming in. lebanon's news agency said a car bomb killed 14 people and injured over 200. that's a strong hold of the militant hezbollah group. dozens of people are trapped in cars and buildings. it's the second blast in over a month. >>> still ahead, new information from alabama where a couple of hours ago investigators recovered that black box recorder from that plane crash. >>> plus, more details emerging on the san diego murder and kidnapping case including what phone records show about the communication between 16-year-old hannah anderson and her abductor right

martha's vineyard, president obama condemned the crackdown by egyptian security forces and announced that the u.s. is canceling joint military exercises planned with egypt next month. president made no mention of u.s. aid to egypt but made clear that the path to democracy for egypt ultimately rests in the hands of the egyptians. >> america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for the egyptian people. we don't take sides with any particular party or political figure. i know it is tempting inside of egypt to blame the united states or the west or some other outside actor for what's gone wrong. that kind of approach will do nothing to help egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. we want egypt to succeed. we want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous egypt. that's our interest. >> joining me today, political editor and white house correspondent at "the huffington post," sam stein.
